Nationals to shut down Anthony Rendon for a few days
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:35 pm ET) Nationals manager Matt Williams said that Anthony Rendon would be shut down for a few days. 

Rendon's minor league injury rehab assignment for a spring training knee injury has been interrupted by an oblique strain. 

Williams told Rendon not to get frustrated by the temporary setback. "It's important for him to be with us long-term," he said, per MASN Sports.


Diamondbacks switch Mark Trumbo, A.J. Pollock in lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:34 pm ET) The Diamondbacks have pulled off a flip-flop in their lineup Tuesday against the host Rockies. Right fielder Mark Trumbo is batting second and A.J. Pollock cleanup. They had been accustomed to hitting the other way around.

It will mark the first time in those spots for both of them this season.

Both can use a little pick-me-up. Trumbo has just one hit in his last 12 at-bats after a mini-tear while Pollock is 1-for-14 over his last four games.


Indians move Carlos Santana to second in lineup Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:33 pm ET) The Indians have slotted first baseman Carlos Santana at second in the batting order on Tuesday against the Royals, according to MLB.com.

It's the first time this season Santana has hit anywhere besides fourth in the lineup. In five games batting second, Santana is hitting .118 with three walks.


Indians activate Nick Swisher from DL, option Tyler Holt to Triple-A
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:28 pm ET) The Indians have activated Nick Swisher from the 15-day disabled list with a knee injury and is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game, according to MLB.com.

Swisher is yet to play in a game this season with the injury. He hit .208 with 42 RBI in 360 at-bats in 2014. With the roster move, Cleveland decided to option outfielder Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus. Holt went 0 for 3 with the Indians this season. 


Blue Jays' Danny Valencia sprains ankle after tripping on dugout steps
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) Blue Jays utility player Danny Valencia was unable to start Tuesday against the Yankees after spraining his ankle Monday. Valencia suffered the injury when he tripped on the stairs walking back from the dugout after Monday's game, per Sportsnet.ca.

Valencia is batting .333 (9 for 27) with three RBI, four doubles and five runs in his last seven games (six starts).


Pirates' Charlie Morton to begin rehab assignment Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Altoona Friday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Morton, who is recovering from September labrum injury, has seen action in a simulated game but has yet to begin a rehab assignment. He went 6-12 with a 3.72 ERA and 126:57 K:BB ratio in 157 1/3 innings in 2014.


Riding six-game hit streak, Cubs C Miguel Montero sits Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:26 pm ET) Cubs catcher Miguel Montero, who had started three straight behind the dish, was given the night off on Tuesday against the Cardinals. Montero has been heating up lately, as he is riding a six-game hitting streak heading into Tuesday's game. But manager Joe Maddon will opt to give him a rest with left-hander Tyler Lyons on the mound for St. Louis.

Welington Castillo , who hasn't played since April 28, was starting behind the dish on Tuesday.


Phillies may give Chase Utley Wednesday off too
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley was not in Tuesday's starting lineup, and manager Ryne Sandberg said that there was a "pretty good possibility" Utley would give Wednesday off too, per The News Journal

With an off day scheduled for Thursday, that would give Utley a three-day break, as the Phillies try to help him snap a season-opening slump. Utley is hitting just .103, with more strikeouts (14) than hits (9) in 87 at bats. 

"You really feel for the guy with everything he puts into it," Sandberg said.


Reds' Devin Mesoraco (hip) likely to get surgery at some point
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:22 pm ET) Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco acknowledged Tuesday that his hip injury will likely require surgery to correct, but he's trying all possible treatments first, MLB.com reports.

Mesoraco would be on the shelf for four months if he undergoes surgery, and it appears he's resigned to eventually having the procedure, though he'll continue to see limited action while playing through the issue for now. He could return to the starting lineup this weekend as the team's designated hitter for a series in an American League park.


Mets move Cesar Puello to 60-day disabled list
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:21 pm ET) The Mets moved outfielder Cesar Puello to the 60-day disabled list, per ESPN.

Puello was on the 15-day disabled list with a back injury. He hasn't played yet this season. The move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Johnny Monell, called up by the team on Tuesday.
